I'm looking into a project where I need to create an SSIS package in a programmatic way. The Microsoft articles on this topic are fairly arcane. I was hoping that there was someone who had built a wrapper or library to be able to create and manipulate these packages more easily through .NET code, but haven't found any. Suggestions welcome, though the criteria of SSIs and .NET are not negotiable.

Does anyone have any suggestions about finding an over-the-phone "tutor" for ASP.NET -- someone whom I can bug throughout the day with simple 5 minute questions e.g. "what's the best way to update multiple tables on insert from an ASPxGridView?". [more inside]

I have a driver written in C++; it's set up as a solution within a VS 2008 project. If I go and create a new "Windows Forms" solution and reference the driver, it works fine (Intellisence works, it compiles etc). But when I try to do the same exact thing with a "Class Library" solution it will not see,link, whatever anything in the driver.
I know I'm light on information, but its that simple "Class Libary"->Fail Winforms-> "No Fail"!
I can't seem to come up with any good google searches for this either.
Please help me hive mind!

I have been laid off and, along with looking for work, I thought I'd learn some new technology and add to my resume. I am now working on a web site for a charity that uses Bing/Silverlight to find meeting locations. One of my former co-workers said "You had better copyright it" which made me wonder if I needed to and if I do, what kind of license do I give the charity?

I'm working a project that requires some custom programming. This is outside of my usual domain, I'm feeling overwhelmed by the amount of objects and libraries available to me. I find most of my time is spent looking up what to include and how to do simple things that are easy once I find what I'm looking for. What's the best way to go about learning the libraries? Should I just sit down with a big reference book? [more inside]

When I do Add -> Existing Web Site in Visual Studio 2008, if the existing site was created in an earlier version of .net (say 2.0 and I'm running 3.5) Visual Studio automatically starts an update wizard to convert the site to 3.5. How do I turn off this behavior so that it simply imports the web site without updating it?
I know this is possible because the first time I did this it happened flawlessly, but at the time I didn't un-check the "automatically update sites next time" check box. Gah.

Help figure out what my options are for solving this programming dilemma. I've inherited an ASP.net project (C#) that is poorly written and even more poorly documented. Apparently the previous owners made a change that broke a page and I am stumped as to how to fix it. It has to do with events not firing for dynamically loaded user controls. If you're still interested, read on. If not, I don't blame you. [more inside]
